I mean, you didn’t think all the Holiday Snacking was limited to the Booths at the Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure, did you? Of course not! There are festive treats galore all over Disneyland Resort, available now through January 7, 2018!

Cookies, Crispies, Cotton Candy, and Coffee

Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, and the Disneyland hotels are full to the brim with sweet snacks like Gingerbread Man Cookies and Snowman Shortbread Cookies.

You can get your caffeine fix with a Peppermint Mocha at coffee stops like Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe and the Pacific Wharf Coffee Cart. (Don’t worry — you’ll still find Pumpkin Spice Lattes in a few locations, too.)

And carts all over both parks will be serving Candy Apple Cotton Candy. But unique to the Main Street Coffee Cart will be over-the-top Holiday Doughnuts!
